Does Mark Cuban root for Indiana or Pitt?


In college hoops, Indiana plays Pitt in the Jimmy V Classic on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden. You can catch the game at 9 ET on ESPN and ESPN360.com.

We wanted to know which team had the rooting support of Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban -- the Hoosiers or the Panthers. Cuban graduated from IU, but he's from the Pittsburgh area and attended Pitt for a year.

Unfortunately, he wouldn't take the bait, pointing instead to the Mavericks, who play host to the Suns on Tuesday.

"I take the fifth," Cuban replied by e-mail. "I'm rooting for the Mavs."

Still, Cuban launched a zinger about NBA officiating during his recent appearance on WWE's "Monday Night Raw." Check out the video below.
